Your Co-Op Obligation
The WMG Co-op relies on your commitment in order for the co-op to operate safely and successfully. It is critical that you take this responsibility seriously and follow the guidelines.
Each co-op member is usually scheduled to babysit three
times per term.
You are expected to ARRIVE by 9:30 am on these dates, and you are expected to stay until all children are claimed.
You are responsible for finding your replacement if you are unable to babysit on your scheduled date(s). It is important that you find a replacement as soon as you know that you are unavailable. To report replacements, or in case of emergency, contact the Parent Contact firstname.lastname@example.org as
soon as possible.
If you do not notify the Parent Contact of your changes, or if your replacement fails to show, you will be held responsible.
About Our Co-op Childcare
Please note that babysitting is based on availability due to Maryland state guidelines regarding caregiver/child ratios.
Where: The WMG child care rooms are located on the lower level of the church, which is stroller-accessible from the parking lot behind the church. Parking is also available in the upper parking lot; simply take the inside stairs to the lower level.
When: The rooms are open from 9:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Please pick up your child[ren] promptly after the lecture finishes. If there are book signings or post-lecture discussions, we ask that you retrieve your child[ren] BEFORE attending these events.
Age Range: The WMG Childcare is for children ages four months to 5 years. Younger children are invited to attend lectures with their parent. We currently use four rooms and separate the children based on age into groups that range from infant to preschool age children. Each room has a sign stating the recommended age ranges. Please observe the guidelines so that your child can receive age-appropriate care, toys and entertainment.
